On Thursday, September 19th, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hold a hearing on the Washington, DC Admission Act (H.R. 51). This will be the first hearing on DC statehood in more than a quarter century.
League members are invited to attend the hearing in Washington, DC or host watch parties across the country to see this historic event. LWVUS and LWVDC have put together this guide to hosting a watch party to view this event.
We have also put together a draft letter to the editor for participants to use to spread awareness about this issue in their communities.
